Breaking: Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan Flops In Bangladesh Too With Poor 1.5 Lac INR Day 1 Against 20 Lac INR Day 1 Of Pathaan

Salman Khan starrer Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan was finally released in Bangladesh on Friday, August 27 by SSR Cinemas P Ltd and The Content Specialists. The release is significant as it’s the second Bollywood film to release in the neighbouring country after Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan. As expected, Salman Khan’s fans couldn’t keep calm and celebrated in several theatres that are screening the action comedy in Bangladesh.

After India, Now Salman Khan Starrer Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan Flops In Bangladesh Too

Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathaan released 4 months after its India release and post its premiere on ott in Bangladesh. Similarly Salman Khan’s Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan releases this weekend in Bangladesh.

As per report in Bollywood Hungama, the film was released in 43 screens in the country and it collected 2 lakhs Bangladeshi takas on the day of its release. It is equivalent to INR 1.51 lakhs. The opening is underwhelming. Pathaan, which was released on May 12, had collected 25 lakhs Bangladeshi takas [Rs. 19.13 lakhs] from 41 screens on day 1.

There was a ban on Indian films in Bangladesh for more than 5 decades. The ban was lifted temporarily in 2015 and the Salman Khan-starrer Wanted (2009) became the first Indian film that saw a release in Bangladesh. However, it led to a massive protest in the country by the local actors and filmmakers, who felt that it could cripple the Bangladeshi film industry. As a result, Wanted was discontinued from cinemas from the second day of its release in Bangladesh.

Earlier this year, as many as 19 film-related associations unanimously agreed to allow the release of Hindi films in Bangladeshi theatres. But only 10 Hindi films will be allowed to be released in the neighbouring country in a year.

The source said, “After Pathaan and Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan, Jawan is expected to be the next film to be screened in Bangladesh. Tiger 3, should also see a release. It’ll be great if these films get a day-and-date release in Bangladesh just like the rest of the overseas territories.”
